Podcast 5 – Post earthquake houses, what are the options?

This podcast is about the options for the Nepali people who want to construct in short term. I discuss on the currently available house designs for the short and long-term residence.

As the Nepal Government is working in the revision of the Building Code of Nepal, I suggest waiting for the code to release before any permanent structure is constructed. There are various suggestion including soil test, minimum width of access road and other technical requirements.

For the mean time, different types of temporary residences can be constructed to be safe in the upcoming monsoon. This podcast covers the currently available temporary house options in the market. I have used the newspapers as reference to compile the list of available houses.
